So if you want to grow in your relationship with Jesus, here are some of the best online Christian resources.

To help they provide answers to the basic human question of where we came from, what’s our purpose and what happens when we die? Bible.org says, The answer to these questions and more are found in the Bible where we read “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world should be saved through him” John 3:17 and
“since He (God) wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one intermediary between God and humanity, Christ Jesus, himself human who gave himself as a ransom for all, revealing God’s purpose at his appointed time” 1 Tim 2:4-6.
